According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Milan already asked for Barella for January, trying to close the deal before UEFA ruling on the violation of FFP. The Rossoneri then decided not to “force the hand” with another dispute in Nyon, preferring to wait. So now the game is open. Ancelotti’s Napoli are added in this race (offer of €20M plus Rog and Ounas) and even if they do not want to be involved in an auction, the Azzurri remain strongly on the player.
The Premier League is also active on Nicolo: Manchester United and Arsenal have also drawn up plans for the Italian and could decide soon on a straight up cash investment. This is why Inter remain ahead but on alert: compared to Lincoln, Brazao, Romero and Tonali, Barella are in the “ready to use” status. He is ready. Making the mix of old and young even more explosive.
